Well! Our daughter Kate is getting married next week. Not only did she remember watching the movie, she remembered how the stitch group made a quilt for the young bride in their midst.
Kate wanted a quilt - and not any quilt: she wanted a double wedding ring quilt.
I told my stitch group. They said un-uh, no way! That is a hard quilt to make (and it was just months before the wedding).

Quilt historian to the rescue. She pulled a 1930's vintage double wedding ring top from her collection. A back was assembled and off it went to trusty local long-arm quilter Kelly Cline. She quilted it beautifully, despite the fact that the quilt turned out to be predictably wonky.
I stitched on binding and we hand stitched it in place at our weekly meeting. Georgann made a label and stitched it on while Kate watched.
We gave it to them a little early - maybe it will show up in some of the wedding photos.
